Sounds like it's the solenoid if the starter spins but doesn't engage.

Might check connections to that before trying to hunt down a replacement part.

Part shouldn't be impossible to find, I'd think, but I can't offer suggestions on where to look.

Probably only of limited use here if the '87 machine has a solenoid, but the starter on a '72(ish) 25 was one of the ones that used a spiral grove and rotational momentum to fling the starter gear up the shaft (i.e no solenoid). If / when that spiral groove gunks up with grease etc the wee gear won't go anywhere.

Fair enough. Still rebuildable, I assume (as opposed to tossing and replacing)?

Absolutely - just clean out the groove & re - lube it. Maybe replace the return spring if you want a total fefurbishment.
